Here's How Much Money Your Favorite TV Stars Make Per Episode, Including the Cast of 'Stranger Things'

From Millie Bobby Brown to Cardi B to Ellen DeGeneres.

According to a new report by Variety, today’s most popular TV actors and hosts, including Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres and Cardi B bank up to $25 million USD per episode.

Despite the popularity of Netflix hit Stranger Things, the show’s cast lands on the lower end of the salary spectrum in comparison to, say, DeGeneres, who lands anywhere from $20 to $25 million USD per comedy special. That being said, the child stars certainly aren’t going broke — Millie Bobby Brown rakes in $350,000 USD per episode, while co-stars Finn Wolfhard, Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton make $250,000 USD.

Rhythm & Flow co-hosts Cardi B and Chance the Rapper receive $500,000 USD for each episode of the unscripted show. Harrison Ford of The Staircase and Kerry Washington of Hulu‘s Little Fires Everywhere are among the report’s highest paid actors — the two make $1.2 million and 1.1 million USD per episode, respectively. Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who starred in Big Little Lies together, earn $1.1 and $1 million USD for appearances on Little Fires Everywhere and Nine Perfect Strangers respectively.
